Hi Martin, I dunno, I think there are plenty of good business reasons for an evolt discount: 1) It lowers our expenses. A benefit that flows straight through to the bottom line thereby increasing our shareholder [aka family/self] satisfaction, improving our localized 'debt rating' in the eyes of our creditors, and providing additional impetus and stimulation to the world economy. 2) It provides us with a cheaper source of gifts for those truely 'hard-to-buy-for' relations and/or existing/potential customers who need to be buttered up. 3) It provides a valuable humanitarian service - a source to fortify us against the minor, mundane, and mischievous annoyances of life ... thereby keeping us from strangling idiot clients/sysops/[- your current favorite here -] and promulgating reduced global violence and crime. 4) The "empties" make lovely candlesticks and craft items for those truely 'hard-to-buy-for' relations and/or existing/potential customers that you don't give a damn about buttering up. Oh! ... But I suppose this isn't about "us" at all!! ;-) Cheers, RonL. -----Original Message----- From: martin.p.burns at uk.pwcglobal.com -------------------- Start of message text -------------------- We're not talking cheap stuff here - maybe UKP60 a bottle. You'd need one hell of a lot of networking within the target audience to justify that.
